how does everyone cover their seeds?

Postby buckcrazy » Mon Sep 24, 2012 7:29 am

I use a piece of chain link fence about 5 foot wide and 5 foot long with a piece of piling strapped to the back. Seems to work fine but just looking for other peoples ideas.

Lightly disk for the larger seeds, oats, cereal rye, etc.

Cultipack for the small seeds, brassicas/clover.

And a 10 foot section Harrow :)

If I have the ground prepared and catch the weather right I just sow the small seeds right before or during a rain

A free pallet from the co op.... Just got home from doing my plot actually. Throw a 50 lb bag of seed or fertilizer on it and roll on.. Works like a charm

I had tons of spots where my dirt was piled up 9 to 13 inches high and that pallet with a little weight has smoothed it down with only one pass over to perfectly smooth.. Cant beat it

Looking back on my years of planting I have used multiple things... including.. a harrow, a pallet, and my personal favorite two years in a row I pulled the iron plate from the inside of a piano that the strings hook to.. it broke in half but we kept pullin with it till it went to the scrap yard. We never could figure out WHY there was a heavy piece of a piano out in the woods but we put it to use. LOL

Use a small 5' disk with a piece of angle iron welded to it to drag behind it for the wheat and oats, and then roll the cultipacker of the rye grass seeds.
